guys? steve: thank you very much, griff. not only making history, making headlines. i was at a book-signing down in florida over the weekend. and when the vote happened, apparently somebody was watching. and the word traveled fast and there was a roar about the outcome of it. you would think it would be settled, but the politics are still very raw. ainsley: oh my gosh i had to give a speech on saturday at the extraordinary women's conference. while i was on stage i brought my phone on stage and i said when you hear the fox news alert, you know he's confirmed. i was speaking between 3:30 and 4:00. the fox news alert came up. and the crowd went wild and i opened up and said wait a minute, this just access that they are starting the voting. then a lady in the audience got her fox news alert before me and she said ainsley, he was confirmed. he was confirmed. so i announced that. ed: the president of the united states had jobs numbers roaring. north korea summit 2.0. trying to denuclearize the
korean peninsula and kavanaugh confirmed. you see the president reshaping the high court and democrats are extreme upset about already talking about impeaching him when f. they take back the house. senator hirnl know said to all mental sit down, move out of the way here as we are going to this confirmation. listen to dr. ford, she had a lot more to say yesterday. watch. >> he's going to be on the supreme court with a huge taint and big asterisk after his name. everyone knows that when you you just interview a small number of people and not the dozens of others who wanted to be interviewed by the fbi. that is a sham. and it raises more questions than it answers. so this whole impeachment thing, you know what? i'm very focused on the here and now. all these very angry women maybe out there. steve: talking about women out there angry. the big question now is will that anger translate into
votes for democrats in the midterms. ed: is it women on the left or women on the right as well who are upset about how justice kavanaugh was treat you had. ainsley: lit debate on both sides. senator hirono when asked about the impeachment. some are calling for impeachment of judge kavanaugh. she says i have laser focus on the midterms. lindsey graham says the goal for democrats is to overturn the president election. listen. >> i hope everybody running for the house in these purple districts will be asked a question, do you support impeaching judge kavanaugh based on five allegations, none of which could be crocketed. do you want an outcome so badly that you would basically turn the law upside down? here's my point. the other side of wants to cancel the election. so, chuck, you want somebody new. look at this list and see if there is anybody you agree. to say what you want to do senator schumer is to overturn the election. you pick the judges.
we're not going to let you pick the judges. if you want to pick judges, then you need to win the white house. ainsley: lindsey graham says he is going to campaign now in those purple states. steve: he many times says look when he brought up elena keg began and sotomayor, i wasn't a fan but i voted for them. in the fallout now a number of republican senators have been facing death threats cory gardner's wife somebody being behead he had. where they get the phone numbers. apparently the start of every congress they get a little book that they give to members of congress and their staff and they have everybody's cell phone numbers. it looks like somebody who had access to one of those little books. ed: somebody on the inside. ainsley: even includes the wife's cell phone number in this book? steve: probably because the contacts to get ahold of the senator. senator susan collins who made an amazing speech on
friday where at the very end she says i'm going to vote for brett kavanaugh. she says this has been tough on a lot of senators on the republican side. >> it's been very difficult i have had the honor of serving in the senate for nearly 22 years. and this is as ugly as situation as i have ever seen during that time. i have had to have security because of threats against me and family members and staffers. and this has been unlike anything i have ever been through. ainsley: i was reading through some of the tweets. my word, they are awful. i want to punch senator collins in the face. i hope someone kills you. you have sold out every woman in the country. if only you were capable of shame. maybe you would kill your horribleself. you don't deserve to call yourself a representative of anyone. shame on you. steve: you wonder who are behind those and those protests. we discovered over the
weekend according to somebody from vice news one of the editors there. apparently some of the protesters responsible for viral moments were actually paid. listen to shawna thomas. >> we also saw people who were organized. in that moment with jeff flake on the hill, we talked to one woman who works for ultraviolet who was paid. she helps steer people in the right ways to be able to con front senators. >> they were paid. >> there were people paid by organizations like ultraviolet to try to harness that energy in a way that would make the viral moments that we ended up seeing. >> shawna claferred after that program on abc. she didn't mean people were being paid to protest. she said there were genuine people there protesting against kavanaugh. but people were paid to steer them to that elevator, say, with senator flake, to steer them. steve: the viral moments. ed: the viral moments. the elevator with senator flake that changed this debate briefly but then
obviously it took it off course for a week. but then, he was eventually confirmed, kavanaugh, anyway. and you saw people climbing um on the statues of the supreme court, banging on the door. remember late in 2016 during the campaign we heard all of these people on the left saying if donald trump loses, he is simply not going to enis the results. he will never move on. he will be on twitter. steve: he said he might not. brian: hillary hasn' hasn't movd on and many have not moved on. >> we will see this every single time if the institutional left is allowed to regain power. this will become our regular politics. chief cultural of our nation are in the hands of leftist radicals who don't care about individual rights or at least not the individual rights of those who disagree. in their pursuit of utopia, every person is either a tool or obstacle. now that justice kavanaugh is joining the supreme court don't get complacent.
don't think the fight is over. it's just beginning and now we know the stakes. remember that on november 6th. steve: 13 hours from right now he is going to be sworn in by the president of the united states, you will see it live right here on the fox news channel. ed: there was a people all over the president trump's calendar leering every day it said winning, winning, winning. ainsley: sick of winning. hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. jillian: good monday morning and breaking news we have been following over the weekend. this is really awful a fox news alert now. a birthday celebration ends in tragedy in upstate new york when a packed limo blows past a stop sign and slams into an suv. all 18 people inside the limo and two pedestrians were killed. it's the deadly es crash in the u.s. in nearly a decade. the limo, a last-minute substitute for a van that was originally hired. among the victims, four sisters. the group celebrating the

fox news contributor lisa booth. >> hi, ed, how is it going? >> i remember before the kavanaugh confirmation battle heated up and all the allegations came out. the "new york times" had a story saying republicans were frustrated the president kept talking about a red wave it was going to dampen republican enthusiasm. they were asleep at the switch. it seems to me they have been woken. >> they have been woken up. i think president trump in recent days has made it very clear that the house is at stake. there is a lot at stake this november. so many saw that play out in the kavanaugh confirmation battle and something that they so fundamentally believe. in which is the rule of law, basic fairness. we saw democrats have such little regard for it. that was terrifying for so many republicans across the country which is why we have seen in recent polling. you have some of these powells that the generic ballot cut in half from one month prior.
nrcc saw 175% increase in small donor dollar. ed: biggest fund raising day history in ever in non-presidential year. they are still raising money. voters who say midterms are very important. democrats 78% in july now up to 82%. g.o.p. 68% in july it was lower than the dems and as you say now up to 80% in october. how do republicans keep the momentum going though because there could be deflation now that kavanaugh made it. if kavanaugh had been defeated you could see republicans really furious. but now he got through there could there be a lack of enthusiasm. >> i think it's important for republicans to keep that going. now that that you have son-in-law soft republicans, independence maying attention. receptive to the message republicans are driving. important to highlight the stakes. president trump at the kansas rally. he said look, you don't give matches to an arsonist and you don't give power to an
angry left wing mob. the republicans' eyes open even more so than on an issue like obamacare. this has affected republicans on a deep and visz seller level there has been something so fundamentally wrong in the baseless accusations made against now justice kavanaugh that i think republicans are awake and ready to turn out in november. ed: guess what if democrats take back the senate judiciary chair dianne feinstein that might motivate republican voters. >> looking at the tennessee senate race, marsha blackburn has opened up the lead there kevin cramer in nowrd has opened up a wide lead over heidi hide camp and you are jon test test test tester in montana voting no. working with president trump. took out a first page ad in his newspaper before president trump came to montana. he is in trouble now. ed: lisa booth, thanks for breaking it down. >> thanks, ed.

good morning, dan. >> good to see you. good morning. >> shawna thomas clarified that she did not mean protesters were being paid directly. they wanted to be there. they were there organically, she suggested. but there were paid people steering some people for viral moments. go get jeff flake at the elevator and the like. what do you think so about that? >> yes. listen, the left has gotten really good about, this ed. it was interesting. i was email someone before the show. conserving groups, a member of a lot of them. one of them emailed me if you have the time stop dune by some of your protesters for kavanaugh. at love the responses were fascinating. i really can't. i have a job. i have an actual job to go to. again, i'm not suggesting everybody who showed up here was paid and i know that woman didn't either. but it's interesting how the left has figured this out. they have learned to leverage social media and use their iron triangle of
media, media coverage, activist groups and people up on the hill to give the impression that they are somehow, ed, the majority opinion when they are not. they are not the majority opinion they are just good at pr. ed: despite all of that they still lost. >> do you know why they lost, ed? they couldn't win an election. they did well under two yeertsz under barack obama nationally but got wiped out locally. ironically, now they are trying to turn that model around. now they lost nationally under trump and trying to take seats back locally. i have got to tell you their efforts at this have turned the polls ironically in the republican direction. they may lose again. ainsley: democratic party is now using this so fund raise. raise some money. democratic chair tom perez wrote this in a letter to democratic supporters. he said in just 30 days we have a chance to elect democratic majorities in congress and for are the sake of our democracy we must. if you're able, make a $3 donation right now to make
republicans pay a price for brett kavanaugh. your response? >> yeah. this is totally unsurprising. they have been dropping a big l for a loss on the money front for a long time, the dnc. as a matter of fact, they are still cleaning up a lot of debt from their mess in the hillary clinton, donald trump election. you know, it's kind of despicable to raise money off this stuff. you know, listen, i ran for office. i get it know at the happens. i know people on both sides do it. i don't want to claim some high ground. this is a situation that's different. you were talking about a guy, supreme court justice, man fully supported being accused of reali disgusting things. this was kind of a red line on the fund raising front and they should have hard passed on this one and they didn't do it. goes to show you the desperation right now the dnc on the money front. steve: officially tonight, 7:00 p.m., he will be sworn in by the president of the united states, dan bongino, we will all see it live here tonight on fox. tomorrow your big book comes out. thank you for joining us

but as those who have known him best have attested, he has been an exemplary public servant, judge, teacher, coach, husband, and father mr. president, i will vote to confirm judge kavanaugh. >> look at that. all three of those senators susan collins helping to fill the supreme court's balance of power of favor in conservatives. brett kavanaugh bringing a new voice to the supreme court. so how will he shape the law of the land in the years to come? our panel of power house women here to react. we have radio host cathy barnett. attorney beth par lotto, who didn't get the memo to wear read. we have political science professor jeanne and noel nikpour. thank you all for being with us. >> thank you. >> we'll start with you, cathy, because you are closest to me, how do you feel about this. >> i'm so excited i'm so
edges sighted. >> why? >> for the past several decades democrats have been able to bypass the role of the people and go to activist federal judges in order to push their liberal policies down the throats of americans in order to fundamentally change america. well now that the highest federal court in the land has decidedly more conservative, meaning they'll interpret the constitution versus rewriting the constitution, democrats are going to be forced to now come and have a conversation with people like you and i. they will be forced to come and talk to us and try to win over our hearts and minds which is something they rarely do because if you look, the only large, sweeping legislation that democrats have ever passed was obamacare. typically, democrats don't pass large, sweeping legislation. instead they bipsz the people, go straight to activist judges, whether talking about sanctuary cities, second amendment, modifying that, whether even trying to stop the president from putting a moratorium on who can come into this
country. it will be really interesting when elitist democrats now have to come and talk to deplocials jeanne, how do you feel about these comments and how do you think it will effect democrats in november. >> we can look back to fdr's days. >> i'm not talking about fdr. >> i'm talking about. [talking at the same time] >> take exception to that what i would say is, you know, i, in terms of my comfort level teaching about the court, i am uncomfortable with both democrats and republicans relying on the court, and this goes back for centuries for our rights. i would much prefer our rights are defined and protected by the legislative body and not by the judiciary. so i am -- i think that democrats and republicans have to re-think what we want unelected judges to do
on the court. ainsley: jen psaki former obama communications member. she says susan collins is a fake feminist. livabllisten to this. >> she is trying to have it all ways. can't say somebody is credible and completely question their story. she struck a nerve with me on what she said and how she voted. that's political cowardice. that is somebody who is pretending to be a feminist but that is fake family ninge. feminism. ainsley: i have an article in front of me all of these awful tweets sent to senator collins how they wants her to die. how she is not a female. make feminist. some of them are too much for me to ivan rea even read on camera. >> professional as an attorney and judge for 12 years that is so osceol offensie to me. you know, judge kavanaugh had an exemplary record, and
he had said i had said at the ct for 12 years. if anybody watched what she said she put it out she is an attorney. i don't believe she is an attorney, senator collins, she laid it out like you would in a courtroom she laid out the case there was no corroborating evidence against him at all. and, do you know what i'm afraid of as a woman? it looks like the left has given us a new normal almost. they are changing the culture. it's kind of like changing the climate. that, you know, that if we don't believe somebody just because they are a woman, you know, that's almost like saying when hillary was running for president we had to vote for her because of her gender. it has nothing to do with gender. this was a great man. he had great, you know, great background as a judge. i think it's awful what she is going through. ainsley: noel, what did you think? senator collins went through all of his cases. she went through them with a fine tooth comb.
she does believe that something happened to dr. ford but she doesn't believe that brett kavanaugh was her assailant. >> you know when cory booker said he wanted to use this opportunity for a spartacus moment or whatever. i think susan collins had a spartacus moment. i heard from so many of my major donors that said right on senator collins. i thought senator collins gave a speech of a lifetime. she brought it back home. she brought it back what we were doing in the first place. he is innocent until proven it's. people had already in their mind just because of the accusation. guilty as charged. she took us back to the basics. i thought she was one heck of a woman. to say have an aide come on television and say she was a fake famil family mist. hofeminist. how dare her. wanted to hear her stand up for the truth. ainsley: what are your thoughts about senator collins and speaking out all
the reasons she is supporting brett kavanaugh. >> i think we have to respect the fact that senator collins 22 years, i believe, in the senate. she is one of the pioneers in the senate. and i don't like to judge people's feminism. i think she has done tremendous work for women and she has been a great example that said, what i think has made people uncomfortable is the fact that she says she, number one, believes dr. ford, and on the other hand also she said last night on 60 minutes she would never confirm somebody guilty of sexual assault. and those two concepts, she believes and she would never confirm has made people very uncomfortable. i would also say as a political scientist and researcher. there is no surprise that senator collins voted for brett kavanaugh. she has long wanted the court to be conservative. just like jeff flake. while they may have been uncomfortable with the allegations. they wanted a conservative court and she moved ahead. >> versus someone who wants to get in and rewrite the constitution and fundamentally change our nation without going to we
the people. yes, we do want more conservative judges who will interpret. ainsley: we have to leave it there i'm sorry. y'all were so good. will you come back in the 8:00 hour? >> yes. ainsley: i only got one yes? come on ladies, they are all coming back. hanged it over to jillian for headlines. ainsley: the democratic staff arrested for revealing personal information of republican senators was actually not an intern. jackson cosco's attorney revealing his client was a paid fellow for congresswoman sheila jackson lee's office. she claims she never paid cas co. is he accused of releasing addresses and phone numbers of senate judiciary committee members and wanted to reveal children's health records. he faces nearly 50 years in prison in convicted. the governor of mississippi is outraged over a high school band's halftime show that depicts cops at gunpoint. look at that republican phil bryant tweeting quote. this is unacceptable in a civilized society. someone should be held accountable. school officials say the

ainsley: president trump celebrating a new round of accomplishments, confirming a second supreme court justice on the heels of another record low unemployment rate and new trade deal. >> here to react charles payne host of meg money on the fox business network. >> good morning. >> we saw these jobs numbers that saw the before the confirmation. job numbers are good. the economy seems strong. >> the economy is super duper strong. beneath the surface on job numbers. everyone talks about the unemployment rate 3.7% is extraordinarily low. my favorite metric is employment to. that's pure right. as we get more people. we expect more people have a job. last month black americans. employment to population ratio, the best since august of 2007. hispanics, the best in september of september of 2008. by the way, of all the four educational categories, less than high school, high school, some college and college. only high school went up employment to population. in fact, it soared. because the kind of jobs
people have giving up through. mining flight roof. construction through the roof. manufacturing through the roof. by th the way, these are better paying jobs like leisure, hospitality and retail. steve: people most benefiting from this are they thinking, you know, we didn't have these opportunities five years ago. it's donald trump or are they just thinking it's one of those things. >> definitely saying they didn't have these opportunities five years ago. whether they are giving president trump the credit or not not sure. talk about trucking. whenever these companies order 53,000 trucks in one single month. you know, that means have you got to have 53,000 people to drive them. maybe another 53,000 to service them. these truck companies are dropping at love requirements before that kept people out of the job market there are people working in this country right now that two or three years ago had given up ever on having a good job again. ainsley: do you think it's because of tax reform? what's the reason for it? >> combination of things. policies, regulatory reform.

stayed away from politics. all about music and female empowerment. she says the more i learn about marsha blackburn's record in congress i can't support her. maybe she should actually learn about her record in congress. being a co-sponsors of bills that stopped human trafficking. sponsors bills that stop the flow of drugs and opioids nut state of tennessee against domestic abuse so on and so forth. rather evident and clear that i don't want to accuse her of this. i don't think she is the only one that wrote that post on instagram. she probably got some very bad information. part of this narrative where celebrities that want to do good in the world, i will give her the benefit of good intentions are being told that people like marsha blackburn are horrible people and nothing could be further than the truth. the final thing is she said vote for bredesen. if you look at pred son's record when he was governor. huge allegations of covering up sexual misconduct in his administration when he was governor. reported by the associated press. steve: very latest fox news

then they have to account for that. ed: she never denounced some of these dirty tricks and tactics. ainsley: she wouldn't answer the question. ed: you have incredible access to -- compared to the white house or pentagon much more in lock down. can you see senators walking around in the parks outside the senate in between votes going to get a cup of coffee. they will start pulling back on that and not be as accessible to the public. they are under threat right now and that's a shame. steve: historically people stood outside the white house and held up signs. same thing for the congress. that's why we occasionally hear people in the gallery at the u.s. congress yell out their point of view and will everyone looks up to see. now they are taking it to a personal level ging to people's homes. hey there is ted cruz in a restaurant. there is sarah huckabee
sanders, let's go after her. to suggest look in personal medical records of children of members children. ed: at some point this becomes inciting violence. ainsley: sarah sanders after restaurant attack then got security. how about our congresswomen do they get security around the clock. ed: some do or don't. if you chair a certain committee have you security. if you are a rank and file member maybe you don't. what i have noticed in recent years it used to be the top four or five leaders. and in recent years when i'm visiting the capitol. i see rank and file members with security. they are ramping it up before. this based on what's happened in the atlanta month it's probably at awful new level. steve: steve scalise held a high place in the hierarchy of congress. that's why his people were there and able to save all those lives at that baseball game but the average member of congress doesn't have security until this weekend. a number of people were
going back home to their districts. and when they were traveling through airports, they had to have police escorts because a lot of people were getting in heir face. ainsley: people get in their face with these cameras. ed: dan bongino in the last hour saying this. >> it's interesting how the left has figured this out. learned to leverage social media and use their iron triangle of media, media coverage, activist groups and people up on the hill to give the impression that they are somehow, ed, the majority opinion when they are not. they are not the majority opinion. they are just really good at pr. i have got to tell you their efforts at this have turned the polls ironically in the republican direction. so they may lose again. steve: that is interesting. so the big question is after brett kavanaugh has been confirmed. who is it going to energize? who is it going to turn out? there is some suggestion it could help republicans it could actually hurt a number of republicans running for the house because a lot of those tight races are in
suburban districts which were not friendly to president trump. ainsley: people said if brett kavanaugh is not confirmed more people will go to the polls because it's rallying the base. mad he didn't get through. now that he is through, i'm curious to see what will happen in november. steve: stay tuned. brian: brian. ed: a lot of other headlines this morning. jillian: a story we continue to follow out of upstate new york. a birthday celebration ends in tragedy in a packed limo blows past a stop sign and slams into an suv. all 18 people inside the limo and two pedestrians killed in the deadliest crash in the u.s. in nearly a decade. the limo, a last-minute substitute for a van that was originally hired. among the victims, four sister he is. the group celebrating the youngest sister's birthday. >> fatality is horrific. i have been on the board 12 years. this is the biggest loss of lives that we have seen. >> two victims were parents

ainsley: the former attorney general made headlines this week sent a tweet questioning the legitimacy that judge kavanaugh has been confirmed with the confirmation of kavanaugh he says and the process which led to it and the treatment of merrick garland the legitimacy of the supreme court can justifiably be questioned. the court must now prove, through its works, that it is both of the nation's trust. joining us now is chief counsel and policy director at the judicial crisis network and former law clerk to justice clarence thomas carrie severino.
thank you for being with us. >> good to be here. ainsley: what did you think of eric holder's tweet. >> that has been their strategy. they wanted it deny confirmation if they could. delay it if they couldn't delegitimize it. hoping to find some way to push back against who is now a constitutionalist majority. so they are not going to give them every decision they want. they will try to undercut the legitimacy of the court. i think it's ironic when you hear a lot of people complaining oh this is going to delegitimize the court. they are doing it by their own rhetoric. they know this is a fair and legitimate confirmation process. as fair as it could be under the circumstances. what the democrats were doing was very unfair. i saw from my own boss, i worked for justice thomas, you know, he had obviously a bruising confirmation process as well. he has served 27 years now with distinction. so many people recognized him as one of the most principled members of the court. he gets along great with his colleagues. so, you know, their wishful thinking that somehow
justice kavanaugh will have an asterisk i think is just that. ainsley: with your experience what did you think judge kavanaugh making good on promise hiring all four of his clerks are going to be women. >> someone who has frequently had a lot of women clerks. he feels very strongly about encouraging women this their careers first time in history that a supreme court justice will have had all female clerks. take that justice ginsburg. ainsley: a lot of women looking at one poll, a lot of women saying republican women that they are going to go to the polls very important for the midterm election to go to the polls and democrats, it's actually gone down. if you look at this poll. it's npr and pbs marist poll. in july 81% of democratic women said it was important for them to go to the polls. now, look at october. 79%. slightly down. for republican women 71 percent said it was important? july. now 83% say october. what are your thoughts? do you think that's accurate? >> yeah.
i mean, when i have been watching this confirmation process in particular, is seeing how concerned women have been about this process. the democrats will tell that you there is a monolithic voice for women. honestly i'm a conservative woman. i don't think that's true. if you look at the numbers, too. when we have done polling in red states like west virginia, or arizona, or north dakota. we saw it wasn't just strong majorities that want kavanaugh confirmed in general. strong female majorities. when you listen to susan collins' speech last week, i think it lined up very carefully and thoughtfully, what a lot of women were thinking which is we care about sexual assault. we want women to be heard, but we don't think there should be unthinking shut up men line like senator hirono said. we think you need to look at both sides. that's what she did. i think that's what a lot of american women are doing. they are concerned about the locals of due process. they want to see that maintain wanted for both men and women. ainsley: thank you so much for coming on. thanks, have a good one. columbus day not in columbus, ohio. the city named for the

support trump as a woman as if there is a woman card that will be removed from you if you don't do those things. there is over 100 women here today for this conference. what do you say to people who believe that? >> for me, it's real simple. i look at the policies of the vivid. i believe in individual responsibility. i believe in lower taxes. i believe in growing our economy. fighting for better trade deals. safer, stronger communities. better education. these are all things, not just as a woman but as a parent that matter to me. this is a president who believes in strong, powerful women. look at all the ones around him. and he believes in empowering them. but doing so, put them on a ground where they know they can do anything he want to do. >> women's issues are the same as everybody the same as the men. except there is a focus on, is my family safe? is my country safe and what are we going to do from here? >> we voted for somebody to come in and clean up the swamp. and get the truth back where it should be.
>> one of the tactics of the left is to say they represent all women. you being here today says, to those women? >> they will be surprised how few women they represent. they don't represent this woman that's for sure. >> do you think the left was expecting this kavanaugh effect on the right? >> i don't think they were. and they are still mad because they lost the 2016 presidential election. so, this is where they are going to do. they are going to have a temper tantrum. no one should suffer what this man has gone through. i have to tell you if you are a male in america today that can happen to you. >> conviction is terrifying for all of us. should be terrifying for mothers of sons and terrifying for mothers of daughter and women in scblenget i have think we are going to see a red wave. the theme of this summit is heels on, gloves off. what does that mean to you. >> that means that it's time for the tie lent majority to become the loud majority. >> care about jobs, economy,
national security, and we're united together here to support the president and his policies. so we have the freedom to put our heels on. take our gloves off. and fight for the values that made this country what it is and to make america great again. steve: well, it looked like you learned a lot. >> i did. listen, they really feel like they are the silent majority. these are women who don't put on pink hats and carry a picket sign. this is how they organize and express how they feel. they are pretty jazzed up. they were jazzed up before the brett kavanaugh event when this event was planned. they are very, very politically excited since the hearings and i'm sure now seeing him confirmed. brian: w ed: we have been talking about threats, particularly republicans being during the kavanaugh battle. now headline on the left
trying to find more ways to impeach kavanaugh. this is somethinthis has to be l for you. >> i know jamie gardner, senator gardner's wife. what a wonderful family. such a shame this is happening. i think people forget and this is where i think there is a lot of bias in the media. if you had seen 12 or more democrat members of congress almost executed on the baseball field a year ago. i don't think that you would see this kind of sort of passivity on the part of the media and the left about these radical elements within their groups. this is dangerous stuff. scalise almost died. 's let's not forget had he not had that detail there would have a mass execution on that field. only because he was a leader in the house that he had that security detail.
the rest of them don't have that. so these threats are real. as a wife, i'm concerned. i'm concerned that it has escalated now to where they are talking about kids and wives. it's scary stuff. if you thought brett kavanaugh, what happened to him was going to keep people away from entering into public life. this will keep people from entering into public life. because their families are everything to them. ainsley: that's right. they are not the only one in the public eye now. their kids are it's ridiculous. susan collins now has security. thank you, rachel. >> thank you. ed: taylor swift out of the woods and into the political arena. the mega star breaking silence to rip into republicans. we have that story coming up ♪

washington and gubernatorial level as is the case in my race remind where voters are on this. they want to start giving benefits to illegal aliens. ed: polls i look at suggest this is neck in neck. one point either way. this is supposed to be kansas, a pretty red state obviously. house races the president was also campaigning on that are closer, i think, you would have to admit closer than the g.o.p. want them. are democrats right there is some kind of a blue wave that might impact even a state like kansas as well? >> i don't think the blue wave is as big as they predict. in kansas, we do have a history of going back and forth between republican and democrat governors for the last 50 years. that's why kathleen sebelius obs hhs secretary. there is historically every time the second year into a new presidency, there is usually the opposition party
has a little bit of a boost. i think what you are seeing in kansas is that boost is starting to be mitigated especially by president trump's visit and by the intense frustration americans have about the kavanaugh hearing. ed: let's talk about the trump effect first and then get to kavanaugh i was covering ron desantis a few weeks back down in florida. he was way behind in the g.o.p. battle for nomination for governor in the sunshine state. he gets the president behind him and there is a -- you know, multidigit swing. president's rally for you. is that the kind of movement you would like to sees a well in the days ahead? >> absolutely. who wouldn't, right? i mean, there is no denying it president trump has a kind of electricity and an ability to campaign for others. that past presidents haven't had. you know, past presidents didn't fill huge arenas with arh 11,000 people coming in to campaign with somebody else as in my case. there is no question he has electrified the people. the voters in kansas. and hopefully it will produce a boost. we will see.
ed: let's talk about the kavanaugh effect, if we were having this conversation 10 days ago. boy, conservatives are a little bit deflated. their nominee is getting battered. some republican leaders maybe not pushing back hard enough and then we see it turn. democrats perhaps overplaying their hand to the point that kavanaugh is confirmed. but, sir, did they also overplay their hand to the point that now conservatives in your state and others are frustrated that democrats went so low that maybe in november they are going to turn out in big numbers? >> yeah. i would use a stronger word than frustrated. i would say they are angered. remember one other thing, ed, that is one of the things that was maybe the third tier issue or second tier issue in 2016 that motivated voters was the supreme court of the united states. we had open seat on the supreme court. constitutionalist conservative americans all around the country said hey, we can't risk this going to someone hillary clinton would put on the court. there is something similar going on today. people are worried about protecting our constitution. when they saw what the
democrats were going to do. that westward people. i think that motivated them. criticize kobach we appreciate you coming in this morning. >> my pleasure. all right. you have seen the video, meanwhile. anti kavanaugh protesters, talking about a moment ago. harassing republicans like senator jeff flake in that he had variety. guess what, we just learned some of them were getting paid. plus, alexandria ocasio-cortez says there is a way to prevent more justice kavanaughs. get rid of the electoral vijay, she says. well, dinesh da souza is here with a little bit of a history lesson for the candidate. >> tech: so you think this chip is nothing to worry about? well at safelite, we know sooner or later every chip will crack. these friends were on a trip when their windshield got chipped. so they scheduled at safelite.com.

three fifth clause to presented to show the blacks not to be fully human isn't at all. electoral college is a different matter. large states and small states. not. anna: at this quaked issue, we have stla now. we have large states, we have small states, if we had a system that gave power only to the large states. the small states would be unrepresented. the whole point of having the core of our founding is the consent of the governed. to create a union, the founders needed the consent of the large states and small states. the electoral college is part of that arithmetic. steve: sure. you know, dinesh, the electoral college has become a talking point for the left because, look at donald trump. he won the electoral college but lost the popular vote. same thing with george bush. so we have heard this for a while. >> we have heard it for a while. i think, you know, in this case, i'm not saying we shouldn't have a debate about this. the problem is that someone
once said tonight take a fence down if you don't know why it was put up in the first place. the founders had a philosophical statesmanship that tried to have powerful ideas but implemented in the real world. the problem is today we don't understanding our schools don't do a good job impeeching the principles of the founding. you have this fanaticism. steve: you blame her education. >> i'm blaming her professors and blaming her. steve: thank you dinesh da souza for joining us live. >> thank you, sir. steve: with a history lesson. did you see this? halftime show in mississippi depicting law enforcement at gunpoint. one police chief from that state is going to join us live. justice brett kavanaugh waste nothing time to get to work for the supreme court. what kind of impact will he have on the bench? we will talk to law professor jonathan turley. he will join us in about 10 minutes ♪ it's already bee it's all beee

court with one swing justice. 19 members would dilute the power of justices. every time we have a confirmmation the whole republic wouldn't seem to be wresting in the balance. we'll look on someone's credentials and jurisprudence views. steve: can congress change this? >> the congress can set the number. they can increase t would occur for many years. so no justice would have all the seats. you would have a court about the size of other nations. these justices would not hold so much concentrated power. steve: are you suggesting thinking maybe you would be on the list? >> well i think with have to go to 1900 before they reach my point on the list. steve: jonathan turley. thanks for being with us live. what do you think of that proposal? email us. this democratic staffer accused of leaking republican

appreciation for law enforcement partners. it does not depict the values of people in our community. we sincerely apologize to all. we pledge to do better in the future. is that, first of all, good enough for you? but secondly, talk about the officers, more important to remember who they were and how they lost their lives of the. >> fir of all those officers answered a call to service. they answered a call that someone was in distress. upon arriving to the scene they realized shots had been fired, they found blood spatter of the scene. they went to look are to the victim who was in need of their service. and once they found this victim, of course they were ambushed. but i think it is very important that the jackson public school district swiftly and aggressively took a stand. my understanding the band director is on leave. but again, for the life of me, i don't know how this even ever happened. i don't know how the band
director and perhaps others thought it was okay that we can allow these students very impressionable minds to go out on the football field and aim and point a threat to kill law enforcement officer. as you know, we have really been faced with a lot of death and in the ranks of law enforcement. that particular weekend, we lost three law enforcement officers. that was one of the most deadly weekends that i have seen in my 34 years of law enforcement. ed: walter armstrong, you called it a teachable moment. i think that is a very important point to make because there is no excuse for it. there has been that apology, but as you say we have to respect our men and women in uniform. we appreciate you explaining all that to us, sir. >> thank you very much for having me on. ed: other news happening today. they're known as mama bears. republican woman are furious the way democrats treated justice kavanaugh. could that turn into red in the

♪ >> nothing turns republicans of all stripes, whether they're bush republicans or trump republicans on like a court fight and they played right into our hands. ainsley: angering a lot of republicans. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell thanking democrats for unifying the republican base ahead of the midterms. the mama bears are part of that base and they are republican women who are angry the way justice kavanaugh was treated. could their anger turn midterm congressional races red? we're getting reaction from our panel. we have kathy barnett, a radio
host, beth is an attorney. jeannie is a political science professor and noelle nikpour a republican strategist. i will start with you down there. do you think there is truth to that? "new york post," a article saying mama bears are mad, republican women are mad the way kavanaugh was treated and it will help them in purple states? >> absolutely ainsley. it will come down to the base versus the base. ainsley: that is a song. >> well it is, it is going to come down to the base. i think mama bears movement kind of depicts what is going on with people on the opposite side on the red side that are angry. in midterms right now, this is a pivotal point. and a lot of people are saying, get ready for the blue wave, the blue wave is coming. i think it will be met with the red wall. i think they will resist it. i noticed fund-raising has picked up. this mama bear movement, the, you know, the feeling that the republicans don't like what
happened to kavanaugh the way he was victimized and his reputation ruined, i think you will see a turnaround in this midterms for some of the states looked like death to the front door of some of those candidates. i think you will see some of these races start to peak. the fund-raising numbers have already shown us, they're not only getting mad with their voice, ainsley, they're getting mad with their dollars. ainsley: beth you have children that work in washington. you have turned into a mama bear. >> i love the term mama bear. i do have a 17-year-old son. he is my baby. seeing what that nomination process has done to our country. he is white. he goes to a private high school. he is a senior. he happens to play football. some on the left say he is privileged. at that point, 30 years down the road can a random person come out of the woodwork make a false accusation against my son, we're supposed to believe her because she is a female?
a mama bear comes out with my oldest who works in d.c. for concerned women for america. she happens to be in d.c. during all of the protests on the left and we, you had -- they weren't protests but you had those supporting kavanaugh and my particular had a t-shirt as well as the other colleagues she worked with at concerned women for america, #confirm kavanaugh. they were spit at. they were cursed at. a colleague was punched in the face. and it got to a point, shortly after the, shortly after the vote, she happened to have been in the gallery, my daughter was, after the vote, their boss, penny nance said leave for your safety. the mama bear is coming out. get out and support those candidates! ainsley: jeannie, we're seeing so many democrats coming out and inflicting violence? i mean when is it enough? when do democrats start to spread the message amongst your
party, saying we've gone too far? >> so i think if you look at polling, anybody suggests they know what will happen in four weeks is, either lying to you or completely delusional because we've never been in this space before. i am a researcher. i'm not a partisan person but i am the independent voice of the misdemeanor ma bears up here i will tell you what we do know, what we're looking at, two energized bases. i think you're absolutely right. the key here is where do independents and moderates go and do the bases sustain this for four weeks? because in politics four weeks is a lifetime. so what i'm advising people, saying the polls last week said this we're a month out already. you have to look at that. the best data we have now suggests two things. number one, republicans likely to hold the senate, maybe even pick up a couple seats. the math looks good for them. the democrats likely enough to get the house, which for all of us should be a concern. we will have divided government.
if we thought nothing was happening before, really nothing is going to happen now. i don't want to be a deb any downer. that is best estimate. you can cherry-pick data and find support for anything you want to say. ainsley: kathy. i want to get you in here. >> i sat and echo the sentiment of so many mama bears who sat and watched democrats try to destroy a really good man. we need to get our minds around where the democratic party is, take us back, back to the days of mccarthyism, where an allegation can destroy your life, or back to the days under jim crow law. i grew up in the very deep south, i remember stories of emmett till who was brutally beaten and murdered because a white woman claim he made accusation he tried to talk to her. nine scots borough boys, black boys received the death penalty because two white women falsely
accused them of raping them. women at supreme court had a sign, believe women. no, in this country we believe the evidence. as a mama bear, raising two wonderful, right, children i refuse that. i reject that. i reject the sloppy thinking on the left. i reject the undisciplined emotion we're seeing out of the democratic party. ainsley: north korea readyallow inspectors into its nuclear and missile testing sites. it has been one of the main sticking points in denuclearization negotiations. secretary of state mike pompeo making the announcement overnight after wrapping up his meeting with north korean leader kim jong-un. >> we had a good, productive covers with many steps along the way and today we took another step forward. jillian: pompeo says the two sides are pretty close to an agreement on a second summit

consequences of. ainsley: what do you mean by that, brian? >> we had opportunity to do the right thing work with republicans quietly, privately, investigate the allegations not in the public domain, not do a fact-finding mission in front of cameras but do it discretely. instead we used allegations at last possible minute, rallied up our base and frankly retraumatized a whole bunch of people. not just miss ford but a lot of folks in america who suffered from sexual assault. that is the strategy that i found appalling watching these past couple of months. steve: so of the two parties, whose more energized, brian, going into the midterms? >> i think we have a horse race. i think it is neck-and-neck. i think the real question for november is going to be, where do these independents fall? what is really interesting that the polling show independents are leaning ever so slightly rather to trump, and to the
republicans. this is especially true of men, white men, hispanic men, and though folks who do not have a college education. in other words that is the trump coalition. and so if in fact that continues to happen, that is really the trump coalition coming home for november. so really then the strategy that the democrats employed has backfired. ed: interesting, because we have a poll looking at intensity and interest in the midterms. democrats in july were already pretty high, anti-trump, 78%. in october that has gone up a little bit after kavanaugh, republicans bigger spread. 68% interested in the midterms. october, now up to 80% as you can see. even more intense than the democratic side. what does that tell you what came out of the kavanaugh nomination fight? >> that tells me senator feinstein and schumer really, really screwed up, right? they had an opportunity to continue with the wind at their back and move this towards victory in november. and they blew it.
they absolutely blew it. ainsley: well, the, a lot of democrats look at this presidency. they say he is not presidential. keep in mind he was not a politician before but many consider him a joke. why do they continuously undermine and underestimate this president? look at the economy. >> i'll tell you when president trump passed or announced the new nafta, right, the usmca, that was tremendous i think for a lot of democrats to look at, what he basically did he outflanked us. he is doing more on trade, and by the way as a subset of that, strengthening environment, labor rules, he is doing more than what democrats have done in the past 20 years. so that is an embarrassing fact that democrats have to own. and the other thing he is doing, by doing that, new trade deals he is moving forward with china. he is really trying to prevent a new cold war with the chinese steve steve bryan dean wright from d.c. >> you betcha.
